The Last Jedi is officially the longest Star Wars movie yet

The Last Jedi is officially the longest Star Wars movie yet.

Director Rian Johnson confirmed recently what has been long reported: the movie’s runtime will be 150 minutes.  Coming in at two and a half hours, the film is longer than any Star Wars movie has been.  For comparison’s sake, here’s the Star WArs films ranked by length:

The Last Jedi – 150 minutes

Attack of the Clones – 142 minutes

Revenge of the Sith – 140 minutes

The Phantom Menace – 136 minutes

The Force Awakens – 136 minutes

Rogue One – 133 minutes

Return of the Jedi – 131 minutes

The Empire Strikes Back – 124 minutes

A New Hope – 121 minutes

With all this movie has to accomplish, I think it’s a good thing that it’s a rather lengthy one.  It will address the Luke and Rey storyline, Kylo Ren’s storyline, Finn and Rose’s undercover mission, the evacuation of D’Qar, Canto Bight, the Supremacy, and the Battle of Crait, among other things.  There’s a lot for it to do, and so it’s a good thing that it will have adequate time to do so.  I’m super pumped to get as much of Rian Johnson’s The Last Jedi as possible.

Additionally, to no surprise, the movie is officially rated PG-13 for “Sequences of Sci-fi Action and Violence.”  PG-13 seems to be the standard most movies, including Star Wars films, shoot for.
